It's not like the team was playing great hockey even before he was injured.

I wouldn't go as far & say he has been bad, he hasn't been Venzia caliper that's for sure. The team isn't good thus far.

Callahan, Pyatt, Stepan and Stralman played well.

Hank... you gotta stop goal #4, buddy.

Lundqvist was bad. Boyle is bad. Bickel is bad. Torts is bad.

I hope Columbus enjoys a top 10 pick.

I would have cared as much if this year was going to suck if we still had our 1st. lol

Anyway, bad game for Hank and everything else sucked. I can't take anything positive away from this, sorry.

and the bold is the issue, that isn't development being nailed to the bench. I'm not anti-Torts like many here but this is an area he needs to work on

Don't spend your money on this loser franchise and their drug addict owner, Jim Dolan.

Dubi too. He frustrated us on the ice and with his holdout. It was a great trade.

What facts?

Point out to me some "facts" that make Kreider a good player this season.

I hate the way Torts has been handling him, but he hasn't been good this season. He isn't the root of all problems, he isn't my whipping boy. I have his jersey, FFS, I love him as a player. But he needs to be a LOT better if he's gonna stick at the NHL level.

That being said, he needs to be better. I really don't understand how he can be so effective as a rookie in the playoffs, and then come in during the regular season and look so uninspired and intimidated for most of the time he's played. He's WAY better than he's shown this season.
I'd suggest he's playing timid because he's afraid of the consequences from Tortorella should he make a mistake. It's a great way to ruin an offensively talented player.

I love Hank. But "only one goal was his fault" is not an excuse when the goal was as bad as that one happened to be. It was the difference. And it was brutal. He's carried us for seven years, it's not sacrilege to place blame on him tonight. I'm not worried about him going forward. But tonight, he was bad.

Unreal, thanks King. The team actually scores 3 goals and he gives up 4. What a joke. Some franchise goalie he is. Thanks for losing the game for us.

Someone has eyes! He should be gone before Kreider, but he won't be.

If Nash can go on Thursday you better believe Kreider is headed back to the A. Miller should have a ticket right behind him, as should Mash.

The fact that the kid is a first year player with a tremendous amount of talent stuck on the fourth line with his style of play being held back by an offensively draining Tortorella system?

They were winning more often than they have been without him and he was playing great hockey.

We could have kept a lot of the other guys we lost outside of the Nash trade but we didn't - Feds and Prust for example. I'm starting to wonder if it wouldn't have been worth paying them more than I'm regretting the Nash trade.

I actually liked Miller's game tonight.

Mashinter sucks. Get rid of the loaf.

The team was playing pretty good hockey before Torts re-imserted boyle. It seems like ages ago but it isn't

Agreed. I understand the fans frustration, and the fact that they see the goalie as the last line of defense. But no goalie in the history of the game or those to come can cover every shot, rebound after rebound. A Dmen that screens the goalie when the shooter is 3 feet out. Look at the 1st goal, As an example, He makes 3 saves than is layed out on the ice and Jokien skates in by himself to tap it home. Pick him up and lay him out, but no we'll leave it up to lundy. If he makes the save he is a hero if he dosent we'll let the yellow bus riding fans blame him...lol

Bringing in some talent, perhaps. I thought Michael Ryder was perfect before the trade to Montreal today

If Kreider needs to play with Stepan or Richards just to score a goal, then he's no good to begin with. Simple as that.
